E. Brady Robinson: Art Desks
Do our work spaces reflect who we are? Photographer E. Brady Robinson examines that question with a series of portraits of the desks and working spaces of artists, curators, art dealers, and critics throughout the East Coast. The result is a project, Art Desks, that has recently been published by Daylight Books, accompanied by an essay by Andy Grundberg. The series began in Washington, D.C. in 2011 as a way to explore the idea of desk as portrait combined with the social experiment of navigating the art world. Her subjects include: Cricket Taplin, art collector from the Cricket Taplin Collection at the Sagamore Hotel, Mera Rubell, art collector from the Rubell Family Art Collection, David Ward, Senior Historian from the National Portrait Gallery, Anna Walker-Skillman, Owner for Jackson Fine Art, artist William Christenberry among others.
